    Hello to all,
    I’ve been enjoying following this forum for a long time. I have a dilemma now; I can’t find my copy of Raymer’s Simplified Design book and I need something from it. He included a scale pilot drawing that could be used to check cockpit dimensions. Can someone send that to me or show me a link to something similar? I’m working on the frame drawing for an airplane and I’m at the cockpit now. Thanks in advance!

    Thanks for the link, BJC! That will be useful later. The drawing in Raymer’s book allowed one to pin and hinge the legs ( and arms, I think?) so you could bend the drawing to fit your fuselage drawing.

    This might be helpful. The man is to scale, so you can print and cut out...
